Camellia oleifera is expected to provide alternative aglycone to synthesize some saponins similar to that from Schima superba with inhibitory activity against Magnaporthe oryzae. Eight theasapogenol galactosides were synthesized via protection of adjacent hydroxyl groups by a benzylidene for regioselective glycosylation in the multi-hydroxyl sapogenin. Water soluble galactose chain connected far from liposoluble end was a key group in inhibiting the growth of M. oryzea unless theasapogenol was modified by two galactosyl groups or by one galactosyl group and one benzylidene group...
